Multi function steering wheel + poss flat bottom

@Special edition fitted a 3-spoke wooden steering wheel in an A2. Any photos, Dave?
I seem to remember people making naval comparisons. πŸ™‚
Sorry Tom...no photos were ever taken although I do remember the Captain Pugwash references πŸ˜…. Personally i wouldn't fit one now through experience ....too hot, sweaty and slippery to the touch in Summer and freezin in the winter. I ending up buying a steering wheel cover for it prior to removal and returning to stock.

Firstly I’m not disagreeing!! But it can be done - @A2Steve used wooden trim from an A8 I think that looked great to me?
The results are here, and they look... like I expected.
As in: should one build their entire car around making them work, they could probably manage to.

Hello again,

Some very direct questioning for the later style MFSW installation which I’ll not fully answer as it involves adapting the steering wheels airbag loom. It’s a subject that I’m not comfortable to fully share on as I’d hate someone to cause themselves or anyone else injury due to not completely understanding what’s involved with this particular retrofit. Adapting the wiring of airbags is not something I would recommend, but if ignored, then the work should only be conducted by a qualified professional who understands the potential hazards associated with these these devices.
"I do understand and agree wholeheartedly - can you think of what would happen if an airbag did not deploy in a crash, leaving only the car's structure to save you?", I say, at the wheel of a car with no airbag and a structure from a good decade before engineers learned that cars crash.
(And, lest I be misunderstood, I do mean it. Especially considering I'm looking into this for someone dear.)
Understanding a wiring diagram along with being competent with a solder iron is an absolute must.
pardon me
being competent
outsourcing it is.

Glad I was able to answer most of your questions, sorry I cannot assist further.
It was plenty, thank you loads! :D
